Patient Comments (1)
Houston, TX |
He is absolutely straight forward. Initial meeting when he told me all the bad outcomes that could happen with cancer surgery was hard but over the time I have been his patient, I have really come to respect him. When I am doing well, short visit. When there is something that needs to be discussed, he acts as if he has all the time in the world to answer all my questions.
